The Address Manager API (Application Programming Interface) is a web service that makes Address Manager accessible to any system that has standard network or Internet access.
Use SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) or REST (Representational State Transfer) to access the web service. The web service has a WSDL (Web Service Description Language) file that you can view in a browser. Use the WSDL file to generate client artifacts, such as methods and serialized classes. Implementers can use this service directly, and Java and Perl API implementations are also provided.
